Interesting concept. I tend to treat algorithms as something we create to make computer processing easier, to gte a job done on a computer. But in fact over time we develop better and better methods. Then there is AI's contributions. What we have left with are excellent ways to solve problems. It just takes a philosohpical turn of mind to apply these to your every day life. Fascintating stuff and a little bit of maths but nothing too overwhelming.
